People are calling Taylor Swift’s hair bisexual in ‘You Need To Calm Down’

The internet speculates over Taylor’s strategically dyed hair, which many have compared to the colours of the bisexual flag

Taylor Swift has released the music video for her most recent single, “You Need To Calm Down” and it’s a parade of celebrity cameos, rainbow flags and gay icons.

Released today, the video sees Taylor living in a Pride flag-covered trailer park inhabited by a smorgasbord of queer celebrities (“If you’re not in a Taylor Swift music video guess what bitch you’re straight,” tweeted Trixie Mattel). Hayley Kiyoko is there with her bow and arrows; Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who recently appeared alongside Taylor at her performance at Stonewall Inn, gets married to real-life husband Justin Mikita in a ceremony officiated by Ciara; Adam Lambert tattoos Ellen DeGeneres; there’s a Queer Eye tea party and RuPaul judges a pop queen pageant populated by former Drag Race stars Tatiana impersonating Ariana Grande, Trinity The Tuck as Lady Gaga, Delta Work serving Adele, Trinity K. Bonet as Cardi B, Jade Jolie giving Taylor Swift, Riley Knoxx as Beyoncé, Adore Delano impersonating Katy Perry, and A’keria C. Davenport as Nicki Minaj.

But people are more interested in Taylor Swift’s hair, which has been dyed in what many are calling the colours of the bisexual flag: pink, purple, blue.

Whether Taylor is subtly using colour coded hair references to come out as bisexual remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain, she is using her platform to come out in support of the LGBTQ community. The video ends with a message: “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. Please sign my petition for Senate support of the Equality Act on Change.org.” If passed, The Equality Act would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in America.
